Looks great, will definetly ask for my B-day. I am pleased to see certain things in here that i wish the BB had
1.Horse pawn, my friends decided that a Hell hound would be a good substitute
2. Large and Huge Bases, it was annoying trying to get the Black dragon to fit in four spaces while on a small base.
oh really thanks, if that's the case, ill probably buy this, in a few months, and find the rune giant, on amazon or troll and toad. I would rather have nearly every enemy in Rotrl as a flat piece, than get about 8 for the same price in plastic figure form.
In my previous thread i mentioned that the BSA campout where ill bring the BB is right before my Birthday. So ithought i might send my adventurers on a quest to make a cake and get cool custom items.
1. I need to have a list of ingredients obtainable from monsters
2. I need a dungeon plan(not a map just ideas for rooms.)
3. I need ideas for a boss which will be the cake(this is an immediate followup for the Blackfang dungeon)
4. I need ideas for weapons as a reward(for every class), for the wizard a spell might be a better idea.
5. I need a reason for them to go on the quest
I like that post, even though i'm a christian, i just hate some people who are over-religious. There's this one kid at my school who is a douche, he is a baptist, and he denies being like westborough baptist church. That's a lie, he makes fun of gay people, hates non-protestants and hates me and my friends 'cause we're bronies.
Anyways i'm not bringing this on the next campout cuz it's a one-night campout where we're going is a zoo which means zero free time. However the august campout (which happens before my B-day, so i might do an interseting side-quest involving making a cake) is at a lake (with plenty of dry space) where they let us do anything we want, but they encourage getting the fishing merit badge which i have. I know some people who joined the troop when i did so we're kinda close. One of my friends has played it so i probably won't let him play. But i know several people who can play rpgs well enough. so i figured how i will deal with my questions.
1. ill bring it
2. 4-6 ppl will play
3. Pregens if people dont meet with me to make characters or for people who join in late
4. I wont bring the internet resources
5. No mine adventure... Yet
6. ill probably do the cake sidequest which ill need help with making which ill put in a new thread.
So my Boy Scout troop has a campout every month and i thought it might be cool to bring the beginner box on a campout and let a few people play it while I DM. At the campouts we'll usually run no-material RPGs which pretty much turn into a weird puzzle, and it gets really effed up when one of the younger kids tries to DM(i dont mean like 5th grade young, i mean any kids who joined the troop after me). I think that we might be able to run the entire adventure in one campout considering my two friends made characters and beat it in about two 2.5-hour sessions. I mentioned it to a friend in the troop and he thought it was an amazing idea. One kid in my troop is a well-seasoned RPG player and another is a slightly seasoned DM so if they're present the game should be able to run smoothly. This would be great since the other players need to learn a proper RPG, plus the lack of a tavern prevents them from banging every chick in sight. I think that at least one of the players would be competent, but i know one or two will probably have to be dragged through the dungeon.
I would like to know several things.
1.should i bring BB on a campout.
2.If so how many should play(i was thinking 3-5 not counting myself).
3.Should i use pregens or not.
4.Should i use the downloadable extras or not since i'm not sure if i want varying characters or quickly made ones
5.Should i do the downloadable mine adventure
6.Should i quickly make another adventure when they finish the first.
one thing that could make the battle quite interesting is leading up to it, the party is ambushed and hopefully infected by lycanthropes(any kind) and during the battle itself there are patches of moonlight from a full moon, when a player sets foot here they transform
If you just want a boss maybe you could try black dragon(but buff/debuff its stats some)
Thanks for the help. The adventure will be the players traveling throught the forest to investigate strange murders in town. After traveling they find a cave with a werewolf and TWO wolves. After killing them they find an item on the werewolf, called the fullmoon pendent(or something) which is an item that turns werewolves into their wolf form by wearing it(with control of their wolf form, also works for wererats).
I am going to make an adventure to follow up the one in BB, i was wondering what a suitable boss would be for two level 2 characters(since you level up if u do everything right in the first adventure). I was thinking of making a wolf based dungeon, with the boss being a hellhound, or maybe a werewolf, any suggestions.
the adventurers kit, grappling hook, holy symbol(i usually play cleric), cleric weapon, light armor, a simple weapon(the range type that my cleric weapon doesnt cover), more trail rations, matches. usually in the order (most needed to least).
Also you mentioned that you laid oout the pawns for this and talked about a barbarian, is there a barbarian pawn you can get somehow
Also if i recall valhalla is reserved for those who die honorably in battle, killing yourself and leaving your ally behind doesn't sound honorable.
I should also point out that only one thing is on teenage guys minds "sex". I've noticed this quite a bit when playing amatuer no-dice, no-character sheet, no-map games on my Boy Scout campouts. Every game there's one guy who says "i wanna be a hot chick in a skimpy outfit with huge t@%%". I say fine but whenever chracters start screwing around and benging everything in site, i put in a consequence that pisses everyone off "Ya'll get HIV, gonarhea, and syphilis" or something like that. As some people have pointed out, make sure bad actions get serious consequences. Also like arioreo said try out the bash demos instead.
I was comparing the bestiary in this box to the cardboard characters and noticed the city guard doesn't have a cardboard counterpart, i really didn't care since they're so populous i'd just use pennies. However i did see that the goblin dog cardboard didn't have an entry in the beastiary, i was wondering if anyone could provide me with the entry from the beastiary book or something else if that violates copyright or whatever.
P.S. is there a place where i can find and post adventures that are custom made.
I'm going into 10th grade and i'd like to point out that younger kids tend to have a weaker sense of exploration. This is most likely because they think they can beat an end-game boss without getting prepared, it's cuz the games preteens play don't have a good system of leveling and fail to reward exploration. I just read through the BB starter adventure and i knew that if i played with my young brother it would be impossible to nudge him towards getting the dragonbane sword without yelling "there's a mother****ing dragon slayer sword on the other side of the pond". Good luck
Hey, i was planning on getting this box and playing over the summer with my friend and my brother. I am going to DM/GM and was wondering if it would be appropriate to play as the pre-included cleric to assist my players for the first few quests, just so they don't die. Also if there are any tips you could give me, I would appreciate that.
